My baby box turtle is getting thicker in the shoulder area and she/he is not using the back legs to move around because they cannot reach the ground, its very strange. She can however, move the back legs if you touch them. The pet store owner thought she could be a little over weight and I should taper down the feeding. She seems healthy and alert otherwise. Does anyone have any advice for me?
